Hello t every-one again.. :)

I'm trying to find camp sites all around south africa, but with not to much luck..
It seems that all of them are for RV's or karevans, I'm looking for just a tent,

thanks to all!!

You can check out some awesome camping spots on the climbza site. I've camped and climbed at a few of these places and they are magical places, particularly Waterval Boven (Mpumalanga) and Swinburne (Free State)

thx a lot for you both!!!

so you say that in each camp ground for karavans there is a spot for tents as well, am I right??

I read that a cost of setting a tent should be around 60R??

thanks you!!!

You can usually camp at backpackers as well. Most of them allow camping. Check out http://www.coastingafrica.com/

There are campsites all over South Africa and all (all!) of them allow tents. And all of them have braai (barbecue) facilities. Otherwise it would not be South Africa. Yes, some of the are called "caravan parks", but it is just a name tag.

Hi Yoad Have a look at http://www.coastingafrica.com/ they mention both youth hostels and camp sites at most places as an option. Hope this helped. Amanda

Make sure you camp in Buccaneers in Cintsa.
It's a backpackers and has lodges but also a BIG beautiful camping ground.
Right next to the beach/sea.
You will be blown away!
Enjoy your trip!
